The Aftermath of You (A Poem)

And I felt peaceful

Through all the


We created


Because I know

It couldn’t have happened

Any other way

Your world is so internal

And I need to feel passion

I’m scared of telling people

When they hurt me

And you can’t read my mind

Thank God.


Because it protects you

Not feeling all the fire

That burned me

From your heart

Being all tangled up in mine


Your peace is all

Tucked into a lie

Wrapped with a bow

Because I want the

World for you


I found myself again

And you seem all

Healed up too

So I’m staying far enough away

For you to not see

The demons

That still haunt me

From you
